WHITESTOWN, Ind. – (Feb. 3, 2017) – Sanders Pre-Cast Concrete Systems Inc. a designer, manufacturer and developer of pre-cast concrete, announced plans today to expand its operations in Boone County, creating up to 39 new jobs by 2021.

“Companies like Sanders Pre-Cast call Indiana home because of our top business climate and workforce,” Governor Eric Holcomb said. “Sanders has been helping build the infrastructure our growing economy demands for nearly two decades. In turn, Indiana must invest in its network of roads and bridges to meet the needs of businesses.” 

The company will invest more than $1.5 million to expand, renovate and equip its current 175,000-square-foot facility at 6142 S. Indianapolis Road in Whitestown. Sanders Pre-Cast will renovate its existing 48,000-square-foot building, allowing the company to produce large insulated warehouse walls and provide service for on-site installations. The company began renovations in late 2016 and expects to begin operations this month, with plans to begin shipping products and providing on-site installations in March and April.
 
Sanders Pre-Cast, which currently has 39 full-time employees in Indiana, is currently hiring for CAD designers, estimators, engineers and laborers. Interested applicants may apply by calling 317.769.5503.

Founded in 1997, Sanders Pre-Cast offers mechanically-stabilized earth wall systems, three-sided arch bridge structures, box culverts, hollow core walls and sound barriers. With an expansions in 1999, the company has the capacity to pour four million square feet of quality precast each year, serving clients that include multiple Midwest state department of transportations (DOTs) as well as large distribution centers. 

With the work of companies like Sanders Pre-Cast supporting the maintenance and improvement of Hoosier roads and bridges, Indiana is known as the Crossroads of America. The state is home to 14 pass-through interstates, connecting 82 million people within a 500-miles radius of the state’s borders.


“Indiana is an ideal location for our expansion plans,” said Mark Sanders, chief executive officer and owner of Sanders Pre-Cast. “We are excited to be back manufacturing and installing large insulated warehouse walls for our customers.”  

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Sanders Pre-Cast up to $175,000 in conditional tax credits and $29,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The town of Whitestown approved additional incentives at the request of the Boone County Economic Development Corporation.  
 
“As Whitestown continues to be the fastest growing community in Indiana, we are proud that the quality products that support that growth can be found right here,” said Dax Norton, town manager of Whitestown. “Sanders Pre-Cast Systems is a long time Whitestown business and we are happy to see them continue to grow in our community.”

The company’s growth plans continue a trend of companies choosing to expand in Indiana. Sanders Pre-Cast is the eighth company since August 2016 to announce that it is adding new jobs in Boone County. Together, these companies plan to create 1,000 new jobs for Hoosiers.
